FAMACHA: Another Tool in Parasite Control
Steven M. Jones, Associate Professor
There are several sources for information on parasite control and FAMACHA. One good source source ishttp://www.SCSRPC.org.
The most common worm is the barber pole worm (Haemonchus contortus), which feeds on blood in the abomasum (true stomach), and if there are too many, they cause anemia, poor performance and ultimately death of the animal. The barber pole worm is responsible for the death of 85 percent of the animals that die of worms and is, therefore, a very important worm.
Ketosis in Ewes and Does
Steven M. Jones, Associate ProfessorJeremy Powell, DVM, Ph.D., Associate Professor
Several small ruminant producers and county agents on behalf of producers have contacted us with questions about ewes and does in late gestation suddenly becoming nonambulatory. Symptoms suggest that, in most cases, it is probably Ketosis. Ketosis has several common names including pregnancy toxemia, lambing/kidding sickness, pregnancy disease and twin-lamb/kid disease. It occurs in all parts of the world and can be a fatal disease occurring only during the last month of pregnancy.
